Despite Hillary's meaningless win in a state she was expected to take, She only gained 10 delegates on Obama. What does she think this is? A 2-year process with 30 other states like PA where she will be able to cut into Obama's lead with each win? Time is running out and so are the States. She needed to do better than 10%. She failed and she's running out of money. So where does this leave the race?

Barack Obama still leads the popular vote.
Barack Obama still leads the delegate count.
Barack Obama still has won twice as many States.
Barack Obama is gaining in Superdelegates with each passing week.

Indiana is now a tossup with Barack Obama leading there. Trouble for Hillary.
North Carolina will be a train wreck for Hillbilly.
This is coming up pretty soon folks.

Even the NYTimes (which endorsed Hillary) is starting to publish opinions calling for Hillary to be kicked out of the race by the Superdelegates.

Obama is rolling to the dismay of you Hillary folks. That is the reality.

Yes and I love every minute of it. The superdelegates are, at this point, the only ones who can force Hillbilly out. If this happens don't be surprised if the Clintons launch a lawsuit. They can't stand to lose and are very poor sports about it. Obama needs to remain positive and stick to his message and carry the tone and he'll do fine.

The intersetring thing is that even with Hillary winning a few states recently, the super delegates are still going to Obama. Let Hillary and her supporters enjoy this moment while they can because its only temporary and once they get out of fantasy land, reality will sink in that Obama leads by pledged delgates, popular vote,has won alot more states and the super delegates are siding with him. Hillary has an uphill battle in some up coming states and Pennsylvania wont give her the momentum to win in those states. She may win West Virgina and Kentucky but thats about it.

Enjoy your fool's gold. Obama was pretty dismal against Hildebeast in the big states (New York,Pennsylvania, California,Ohio). Barry Obama better get his numbers up in these states, as they are a goldmine of electoral votes in the general election. Barry Obama will be like Barry Goldwater come this November...SWEPT!

Obama could easily get NY and California in a General Election, especially NY. Penn and Ohio he's gonna have to work on a little.

Considering that traditionally NY and California swing towards the Dems..he better win them. He will have to work hard, and I mean hard to pull Pennsylvania and Ohio from McCain. Did you see the county voting map for PA? The only counties that voted Obama were around the Philly area and I think Harrisburg. The rest of the state and Pittsburgh voted for Hillary. I guess thats what happens when you open your big mouth and insult a state that holds 21 electoral votes.

Back to reality that Obama can't seal the deal before the convention.

He will get Penn in November. Ohio maybe or maybe not- I would probably say not but that loss can be made up elsewhere, maybe in Florida.

Pittsburg, Philly, Erie and their suburbs will be won by Obama in November. As for the rest of the state, nobody lives there except for bitter people clinging to their guns and Bibles.

I wish all you Hillary and Obama fans really understood how the economy and taxes really work together. In order to have growth and lower the deficit you must also lower taxes. But you are all so busy fighting against each other you are not seeing the big picture. But please don't stop! You will make the November outcome much better, and we can get this country rolling again.
